    Donut County is short. It has little to no replay value. It feels like it squanders a great deal of its potential. And yet, Donut County is still one of the best games I’ve played this year. You may only get a few hours out of Donut County, but they’re a few great hours.

    If you’re looking for something that will challenge you and twist your brain into knots, this game isn’t it. There’s no real skill curve, and most of the puzzles are simple enough that you can more or less accidentally stumble on the solutions, with a few rare exceptions. But I assure you that from the first moment you tip something into that hole and see it grow, you’ll be hooked.

    Donut County is an excellent concept executed with pizzazz, personality, and an unexpectedly salient message at its core. While the end came abruptly and left me wanting more, like an endless mode or bigger levels to swallow things in, I can't deny the great time I had with what's there.

    A light-hearted adventure, short but full of charisma. If you want something unique and charming, give this a try.

    Much like the sugary treats in its name, Donut County is sweet, satisfying, and you'll wish there were more when you're done. It's a jovial little adventure that has some great ideas; moving a hole around making objects fall in is surprisingly addictive and entertaining. Serving as a bite-sized snack between bigger titles, this definitely hits the spot, but those looking for a more filling experience may be left a little hungry.

    It’s something of a dilemma to be left disappointed by a game where your only complaint is that it left you wanting more. But that’s how I feel about Donut County. What it does, it does very well. But there just isn’t enough of it.

    Donut County gets points for its great art style, hilarious writing, and its truly unique gameplay. Unfortunately, as a game, it feels woefully underdeveloped, lacks any kind of challenge, and is far too short.

The downside is that the whole thing is quite short, I fully completed the game and got the platinum in about 3hrs.

    If you want a game that is original, funny and perfectly crafted then pick this up and enjoy, if the limited runtime is an issue then skip.

    I really enjoyed this game, but it was much too short. I was actually shocked when it ended because I assumed there would be 100 levels! EvenI really enjoyed this game, but it was much too short. I was actually shocked when it ended because I assumed there would be 100 levels! Even though I completed the game in what felt like 2 hours it was a fun little experience. Wouldn't pay more than $20 for this quickie though. Expand
